Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone-award winning Czech mezzo soprano Magdalena Kozena leads a top line-up of soloists for three of Bach's most admired Cantatas (BWV 113, 179 & 199), with Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducting the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists in the beautiful St Davids Cathedral in Wales. Sir John Eliot Gardiner's Bach pilgrimage - A 60-minute film of Gardiner's Millennium Bach pilgrimage tour with excerpts from many other Cantatas completes an exceptional title and documents Gardiner's remarkable dedication to the music of J. S. Bach.

Gramophone-award winning mezzo soprano Magdalena Kozená leads a top line-up of soloists for three of Bach's most admired Cantatas (BWV 113 179 & 199) with Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducting the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists in the beautiful St David's Cathedral in Wales.

"A revealing diary of an ambitious pilgrimage...the Monteverdi Choir, typically bright and incisive...the four soloists matching them in those qualities... it is the Czech mezzo, Magdalena Kozena who wins first honours with her superb singing...moving on the one hand, brilliant on the other." - The Gramophone

"The comprehension of Bach's music and its links with Lutheran theology are further underlined by Magdalena Kozena, who continues to articulate Bach's vivid imagery with eloquence and subtlety in Cantata BWV 199... Warmly recommended." - Choir & Organ
